The following error is shown in wpe.log

ERROR   2014-07-29 17:03:53 (3764/2232): The mailbox that was requested doesn't support the specified RequestServerVersion., Details: System.Web.Services.Protocols.SoapException: The mailbox that was requested doesn't support the specified RequestServerVersion.

The version of Exchange is 2010, version 2007 also exists in the environment.


Mailbox for pem_admin account is located on Exchange 2007 while WPE expects it to be on 2010. It can be verified in the following way:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32> Get-Mailbox -Identity pem_admin | fl DisplayName,database,ServerName,windowsEmailaddress
DisplayName                            : pem_admin
Database                               : EXVS001\VS0101G01\VS02SG08DB
ServerName                             : exvs001
WindowsEmailAddress                    : pem_admin@domain.local


Move pem_admin mailbox to 2010 version directly in Exchange and re-run the task after that.
